Today our first grandchild was born, Nicholas Schroeder.
Happy Birthday Baby Boy!
All the fields that were Fire Wheels are now filled with Brown Eye Susans
This afternoon Josh and I went for a walk along the proposed driveway and we heard a Golden Cheek Warbler within a few minutes of walking on the path. As we were leaving 90 minutes later, we heard two outrageously loud and unmistakeable calls simultaneously, and practically on top of us -- the Yellow-Billed Cuckoo and the GCW. It felt like they were either saying "hey come back!" or "see ya next time!" Maybe they were giving a shout out for baby Nicholas.
Here are more photos from the walk.

We enjoy sharing the variety of things we are finding at Bliss Haven, hope you enjoy it too.
